Blame it on something in our DNA, or human curiosity, or maybe some deep-seated neurosis we can never begin to understand.
But, face it: We’re all pack rats when it comes to something.
Stamps or coins. Books. Commemorative poker chips. Rubber bands. Books. Sheet music composed by people whose names begin with “R.” Popsicle-stick renditions of famous post office buildings. Potato chips that resemble silhouettes of “According to Jim” cast members. Whatever.
We’re embarking on a quest for Southern Nevada’s most impressive, weirdest, coolest, most incredible collections to feature in an upcoming story.
Just send us a note — and a photo or digital image, too, if you’d like — telling us briefly about your collection, why you collect whatever it is you do and how long you’ve been at it, and be sure to include your name, age, address and daytime phone number (we may want to call you for additional info), too.
Send your e-mails to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure you put “Collections’ in the subject line. Or, send your letters to: Collections, Features Department, Las Vegas Review-Journal, P.O. Box 70, Las Vegas, NV 89125-0070.
In either case, make sure we receive your notes by Sept. 24. We’ll set up photos of some of the collections and run them in a future Living story and online.
And, in the meantime, we’d be happy to show you our collection of Oreo cookie packages from around the world …
